"I'm going to try and get over to Gainesville," Davis said. "I'd like to be there. I know that Coach (Urban) Meyer wants me to be there. I hit it off with (Mobile Davidson safety) Mike McNeil pretty well. We're looking at the same schools, so I might call him and see if he is definitely coming over. He said that he might do that. I'll probably also call Carlton (Johnson) and Bert (Reed) and see if they're going to go. We're all pretty good friends. Maybe, I can get a ride over with one of them."
Davis was extremely upbeat when describing his recent trip to Auburn. He spoke glowingly about the opportunity to have Irons tell him about the school and program. He was also happy to spend time with coaches Tommy Tuberville and Eddie Gran. While on the Plains, Davis met Auburn commit Bailey Woods (Marietta Walton) and the pair struck up and immediate friendship. He said that Woods text messaged him today after he returned to Florida.
He tripped last week to Florida State, where he was told by coaches Mickey Andrews (defensive coordinator) and Billy Sexton (running backs) just how the Seminoles would utilize him. They feel as though he could help them right away
"I have eight schools that I really like," he said. "This is no particular order right now, but I like Auburn, Florida State, Alabama, Georgia, LSU, N.C. State, South Carolina, and Florida is in there too."
Davis has been especially busy this summer. He finished summer school early and graded out with a 95 in Economics and an 88 in American Government. He didn't know exactly how much that might drive up his overall GPA, but he was very pleased with the results.
"Maybe now I can get out there and visit a few schools," Davis stated. "I've been so busy with school and our summer conditioning program that I didn't really have much extra time. I wasn't supposed to finish for another week, so this helps."
Davis is considered one of the premier big backs in the south. This past season, Davis ran for 1,817 yards. He scored 24 touchdowns, averaging almost 10 yards per carry. His father, Henry, was an All-Southeastern Conference cornerback for the Gators in the '70's.
